Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference is currently under way, and as usual, the technical fellows at Microsoft gave speeches about the deep architecture of Windows - in this case, Windows 7 of course. As it turns out, quite some seriously impressive changes have been made to the very core of Windows - all without breaking a single application. Thanks to BetaNews for summarising this technical talk so well.

I'm going to get downvoted for this (it is off topic) but...

on osnews generally only very very few posts get downvoted so they're not readable. This thread all of a sudden has tons, and a lot of the posts "killed" bring up points that have valid discussions that are now partly ruined because the original post isn't visible for context of discussion (many are not in bad taste trolls).

Whats going on here?

What comment are you refering to? All the downvoted comments are made by morons and trolls on the first page at least.

There's the one thinking "giant locks" have been removed DECADES AGO (lol) in Unices anymore (they're still there bro, they're being gradually removed afaik, just like MS is doing).

There's the one claiming MS has got an inferior kernel, though he wouldn't be able to tell why or even define what a kernel is for the life of him if asked.

Some random linux troll.

And the other one comparing vista boot time to AROS.

Hardly anything useful there.

Couldn't agree more. Sometimes I do miss the early OSNews days without Slashdot like trolling.
